To make the most of your night at Circa Theatre and Encore we would like to suggest and advise the following:

  • If you would like espresso coffee at interval, please pre-order it, as time does not allow us to make espressos at interval. Filter coffee is available at interval;
  • Please expect delays on hot counter food or espresso 30 minutes prior to the show as this is our busiest time;
  • Our restaurant staff will take your orders promptly after you are seated to allow enough time for us to cook and for you to enjoy your meal before the show is due to start. Please give yourself enough time to enjoy your pre-show meal at Encore - we recommend making your booking an hour and a half before the show is due to start;
  • To offset the time limitations we have before the show, we can utilise interval and time after the show for dessert and coffee if you wish. Dessert and coffee or drinks can be pre-ordered for interval or after the show.
  • Extend your evening out by staying for a post-show drink or sweet and chat with friends about the show. Our full range of counter food is available after the show.
  • For groups of 6 or more, please see our Group Dining packages for best value pre-show dining.

Encore at Circa Theatre, 1 Taranaki Street (next to Te Papa), Wellington
